MacVim and NERD Tree

My quest for the text editor nirvana [1] goes on .. next up, MacVim.

MacVim is a port of the text editor Vim to Mac OS X.

My fingers are used to VI so that's a point in it's favor.

MacVim supports multiple windows with tabbed editing

Really? I like tabs. I really like TextMate's file drawer however, so I'll probably not use it much ..  what's that you say?

The NERD tree : A tree explorer plugin for navigating the filesystem

Do what?

Check out this demo

The NERD tree allows you to explore your filesystem and to open files and directories. It presents the filesystem to you in the form of a tree which you manipulate with the keyboard and/or mouse. It also allows you to perform simple filesystem operations.
Well, golly - that is pretty slick.

MacVim with NERD Tree by you.

[1] Like sailing, it's not the destination, but the journey.
